Life has been hard since thirteen-year-old Cady's father died early in the year 2080. When she isn't worrying about her mother, her younger sister, or herself, Cady is dreaming about dragons. Yet even in her wildest dreams, she never imagined becoming a Dragon Charmer, responsible for the care and well-being of a small but fierce, brave, beautiful, and endangered dragon. DragonS are not the evil creatures that they have been misconstrued as; instead, they are dependent on the goodwill of humans, growing slowly and receiving a new scale only when a person does an unselfish deed. A magical reference book catalogs the name of the person responsible for the deed, as well as the date and time of its occurrence. Cady is shocked to see that her father’s name appears in the book many times—and that the last entry was only a day ago. He is still alive! As Cady works through the mystery of her father’s disappearance and the dangerous responsibilities of secretly caring for a forbidden creature, she learns that both her father and her dragon hold a few amazing secrets of their own.
